teach a subject you don't know?
will definitely come a time when your son or daughter wants
to learn about a subject you know absolutely nothing about
(and often have no desire to learn, either!)
it is about an obscure type of dinosaur, or the real life
of an 1800s author, chances are you will be able to teach
your child all about it, without having any prior knowledge.
veto a subject your child is interested in learning about,
simply because you are not familiar with it. If you veto too
many topics, you can easily discourage your child from learning
and from homeschooling.
you will often find a resource in your community or online
that you can tap into for help. Also ask family and friends
about topics they are familiar with, as you never know who
might have the same love of that dinosaur or author. And children
can easily do this research themselves, which you can make
into a research project for credit.
you can learn all about the subject along with your child.
You don't need to be an expert in everything your child learns,
and learning about new things alongside your child can be
interesting for you as well.
